Doxical

So guess WHO went to the MAC store 2 days ago and walked out empty-handed?

ME!!!

…..and it was so difficult. I went in the store and played around with C-Shock and absolutely LOVE the colors. So so soooo much. One of the Make-Up Artists was sooo nice and he helped me decide what colors to get WHEN I get the money. As much as I am starting to love make-up, I need to be more responsible with my money. I am now broker than broke because of my impulsive MAC runs. Welllll, you live and sho nuff learn. I tell ya that much.

So anyway…..I’m decided to buy only one MAC brush right now. And that’s #224. I keep hearing great things about it. It’s $28….that’s a lot of dern money just for a brush. And I’ve been doin‘ pretty well with my watercolor brushes, so I ain’t ‘gon fix what ain’t broke. ‘Gon work wit what I got and chhhhhyeahhh…..go from there.

I found a pic of myself that I took on New Year’s Day before I went to some party:

You’ll have to click on it to see the eye make-up. I’m feelin‘ the design and will re-create and name it soon. Pretty HOT colors. Wait….here’s a close-up.

Not bad for a beginner, uh? I love the gold. Defintely gotta do this one again.

…..sooo, while I found so much success with parrot eyes, I have to keep in mind that designs like that are JUST for fun. As much as I’d like to, I can’t go walking around everyday with 6 different colors of make-up on my eyes. Sooo I’m in the process of finding everyday looks. Something subtle, but noticeable enough that you can still say, “Hey! Her eyes look nice.” And so I did a tri-color look from my MAC drawer using:

Amberlights for the lids

Trax for the crease
…..and Vex for the highlight (or some call it the browbone)

…..these colors are absolutely BEAUTIFUL on my skin. I love it. And they look so well together. Trax alone is the best dern color in the world.

Here’s what I created:

Do you see the three colors? (remember you have to click on the photo to get a better view) I lik it!! And look how good the colors STILL look even after I spent 2 hours out in the sun at the beach…not only was I in the water, but I was sweatin’ somethin’ serious out there and the color is still on.

Here’s what it looks like after I got all cleaned up and refreshed my face:

And one with a smile….

And how ’bout JUST the eyes?

Noooot bad, hmmm? I could have blended a little better, but not bad at all. I think this is a great “everyday” look. I shall call this look: DOXICAL!!!!

…..I’m also noticing myself feeling like I HAVE to put on my Studio Fix everyday. This is exactly what I did NOT want to do. I’ve always indulged in my beauty without enhancements, but I don’t want to become dependent on it and feel like I NEED it. I think that’s a problem. I should feel just as confident without make-up as I feel WITH it. That’s really important to me.

So to bring myself back down to earth…..I’m not wearing any foundation this upcoming week. Which shouldn’t be too hard.
